    Sucre

    March 8 in Bolivia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Die konstitutionelle Hauptstadt Boliviens ist vor allem für ihre Altstadt bekannt. Ihre weissen Gebäude zählen als eines der best erhaltensten Beispiele einer Kolonialstadt in Südamerika. Seit 1991 ist die Altstadt als Unesco Weltkulturerbe bekannt.
    Wir haben uns hier für die nächsten 3 Tage in einem Apartement mit wunderbarem Blick über die Stadt eingemietet. Trotz der eher niedrigen Lage Sucres auf 2'800 M.ü.M., kommen wir beim Aufstieg zum Apartement ins schnaufen&schwitzen. Da wir in den letzten Wochen ein bisschen schnell von einem Ort zur nächsten Tour unterwegs waren, nutzen wir die Tage hier, um ein bisschen zu entspannen. Es darf wieder mal ausgeschlafen werden und wir finden auch Zeit etwas feines zu kochen. Die Stadt erkunden wir in einem gemütlichem Spaziergang und auch dem indigenen Museum statten wir einen Besuch ab, bevor es mit dem Nachtbus Richtung La Paz geht.Read more

    Sucre

    November 30, 2018 in Bolivia ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Unfortunately I was still ill by the time we arrived in Sucre, so that bus was as uncomfortable as you can imagine. Kat also suffered a bit towards the end, as the bus was heated to combat the Andean nights but it was really very warm by the time we rolled into Sucre.

    Despite this we really liked Sucre, with its whitewashed walls and relaxed atmosphere. We did another walking tour but the highlight for me was going to the pharmacy to get antibiotics (which was depressingly easy if you are worried about antibiotic resistance). After a week of being ill, I noticeably improved after taking them and could finally stomach something more than a banana.

    Before getting an afternoon bus to Potosi we decided to visit the dinosaur park. It had replica dinosaurs for kids but the main draw was the tour to walk up to the cliff where you could see dinosaur footprint fossils all along it. It really was crazy to think that millions of years ago dinosaurs walked over the land which repeatedly got covered by earth and turned on its side by tectonic plate movements. One weird thing about the park is that it is basically in a cement factory. That is because there was once a limestone mountain that the factory was extracting and the cliff formed when they stopped mining as the limestone ceased. The elements then slowly exposed the footprints. You can almost imagine a worker turning to his mate one day and saying 'is it just me or are there giant footprints in that cliff?'

    City Tour.

    April 15, 2016 in Bolivia ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    We have managed to get ourselves roped into doing a city tour, in a way im glad as we will leave tonight and I'm interested in the history of the city. A lot of people think La Paz is the capital of Bolivia, but Sucre still holds that status even though the Government is based in La Paz. This is definitely the prettiest city we have been in Bolivia and has an amazing charm about it. We start the tour at bone street which used to be a graveyard but was given back to the city.as a street, apparently one night two drunk men were walking along here and a ghost appeared one of them fell over and the other ran off, the one who fell over was never seen again so they buried bones in the street to ward away the spirits these were replaced about ten years ago with animal bones, a little walk took us to the oldest colonial buildings in the city. There are still quite a lot of houses constructed f adobe and as ucre has a Unicef world heritage site which means that all buildings have to be replaced with the same form and characteristics and no new buildings can be constructed. The bars on the windows aren't there to protect from burglaries they are to stop the boyfriends getting in . We then walk to the top of the city where we get a panoramic view from the original square. The next stop is cat streets where when the men went to war the women had cats to keep them company and they bread that fast that they overtook the streets but we're so aggressive that they actually made walkway either side so the cats would stay in the middle and not attack the people. The fist ever church is our next stop and then down to the main square where the various museums and houses of folkore surround it. As we are in the square we hear a band and before long the streets are full of people dressed in fancy dress childrns outfits. Today is national childrens day in Bolivia and my do they go all out.Its so nice to see the kids so happy. We walk own to the main courts of justice and when we go in there are boxes of files stacked high, its a woner anyone gets a fair trial here. Opposite is a big park with a replica of the Eiffel tower in, (well sort of ) and a little boaing lake. We finish the tour with a visit to the biggest hosital in the country, which actually takes up a whole block. I have to say the tour wasnt as good as i expected and we havent visited any of the museums, but we still have time but first must get our tickets booked for tonights bus. We get a taxi to the bus station as its a good 3km from town and when we arive we have a good haggle between he various companies and manage to get our tickets for just over 7 quid. W ctch a local bus back totown and go straight to the museums. I have to say the mask museum was my favourite with various masks from around the regions some in the dark which actually scared me. This museum also housed an area of art, of famous women and men in history that had made changes to various vunerable people. A really thought provoking display, but very cleverly done. Back to the hostel with just enough time to make a few calls to the fambo before heading to the ststion to catch our night bus . On the bus i try my best to sleep but the driver is driving like a luntic, and im aware of how many deaths theyre have been on this road , i must have drifted off as a 2 in the morning the whole bus is woken forr a pitstop, and seeing as the toilet isnt working on board its a welcome relief. Back on the bus and the road ahead sems to be more straight and i nod of again.Read more

    Sucre

    April 12, 2018 in Bolivia ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Längerer Zwischenstop zum Spanisch lernen.

    Die Hauptstadt Boliviens ist eine schöne kleine gemütliche Stadt. Die Stadt ist bekannt als Universitätstadt viele Hostel bieten direkt Spanisch Unterricht bei einem Privatlehrer vor Ort an. Wir haben gemütlich eine Woche gemacht und können uns jetzt rudimentär unterhalten. Eigentlich reicht eine Woche um die Grundlagen zu können. Jetzt muss es nur noch vom Blatt in den Kopf.

    In der Umgebung wurden Dinosaurierspuren erkundet und sonst ein Faulen lenz gemacht.

    Sucre - white city of Bolivia

    May 3, 2017 in Bolivia ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Sucre geras ramus stopas tarp lėkimo didžiulėmis distancijomis. Apsistoję čia net 2,5 dienos pristabdome arklius ir leidžiame laikui tiesiog bėgti. Visgi dvi dienos veiklos ir dvi naktys iy eilės naktiniuose autobusuose ne pati žaviausia mūsi kelionės dalis. Bet taip susideliojome siekiant sutaupyti vieną fieną ir neužsilikti Bolivijos kaimuose daugiau nei reikia. taigi Sucre...
    - lyginant su Perujietiška Arequipa tikrai baltas miestas. 95proc pastatų yra baltai balti.
    - oficiali sostinė.. nors 10kart mažesnė už politinį LaPaz
    - realiai studentų ir moksleivių miestas. Visi kieno tėveliai išgali važiuoja čia mokytis Pietų metu sunkiai vaikštosi gatvėmis nes jaunimo čia tiek daug kiek dar neteko matyti.
    - pagaliau šilta.. net iki 20 laipsnių dienos vidury! atostogos!

    Sucre - Some bolivian life impressions

    July 22, 2012 in Bolivia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Some impressions of bolivian life in the Andes. It's really different to a city like Santa Cruz de la Sierra, which is a "modern" western city. Stay just for a while in Sucre, and you gonna love this atmosphere!

    Sucre, Bolivien

    November 21, 2016 in Bolivia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Umweg über Potosí, weil Sucre wegen eines Referendums gesperrt ist. Unterwegs lernen wir eine lustige Truppe von Engländern und Australierinnen kennen. Ab der Stadtgrenze Fußmarsch mit Sack und Pack, weiBusse noch immer nicht fahren dürfen. Die zweite Hauptstadt Boliviens ist hell und freundlich - schöne Altbauten, unglaublich herzliche Menschen, entspannte Atmosphäre.Read more
